Sebastian Vettel is a four-time Formula 1 racing champion. Vettel finished P11 in Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix. The real race took place after all the pop and circumstance was long over.

Vettel was exiting his Aston Martin in Barcelona, Spain earlier today. Robbers approached the famed driver, stole his backpack, and took off. Sebastian Vettel wasn’t about to let them get away easily.

TMZ reported that Sebastian hopped on a nearby scooter to hunt down the criminals. He used the GPS tracking feature on his AirPods to find his bag. Once he found it, the expensive headphones were missing.

An AM representative spoke about the incident. They noted that Sebastian Vettel’s heroic chase turned up nothing. Still, it was a very resourceful thing for him to do.

Formula 1 drivers have been experiencing a run of bad luck. Charles Leclerc had a $320,000 watch stolen recently. Leclerc was meeting with fans at the time.

It will now fall to the Spanish authorities to try and recover Sebastian Vettel’s AirPods. Fortunately, he can easily afford another pair. His career earnings have totaled over $350 million.
